I’m a thirtysomething dad and IT professional living in the Austin, TX area. I started gaming way back in the day, 1982, with the TSR space opera game Star Frontiers. Since then I've been an avid roleplayer. I went to 5 Gen Cons, was a regional Triad for the RPGA's Living Greyhawk campaign, helped start a gaming club (the FORGE) in Memphis, TN, et cetera.

I GM and play a variety of RPGs; currently Pathfinder is in heavy rotation as well as various non-D&D-based games.

comment The Tyranny of the Weaker Brother
I see no way in which that makes sense. Ok, how about "general American evangelical tradition?"

comment The Tyranny of the Weaker Brother
This is not a personal, pastoral-advice question as defined in Meta so I've nominated it for reopening. I used a personal story simply as an example/illustration of the theological problem, and can delete it if required.

comment Why do Catholics put so much faith in the Virgin Mary?
That makes no sense as a critique. 1. No one is discussing praising Mary outside the context of God, and 2. In the scripture is is still couched as "you, person name here, are blessed" so it is showing us how to praise people other than God. When Catholics refer to Mary it is in the sense you propose - like scripture, praising her for the reflected work God accomplishes through her.

comment Should Jewish Christians not work on Saturday or Sunday?
Are you asking for the Catholic answer? What sort of Christian? The answer may differ in that group's opinion.
